Richmond baseball: Affiliations III

This post references, my original post about the Flying Squirrels’ 2011 affiliation.  In addition, I just wanted to say “hi” to those who were referred here by OurSports Central’s Facebook site.

Executive summary: the Orioles option is no longer available. 

The Bowie Baysox announced today that they have signed an extended Player Development Contract for 2011-2014 with the Orioles, who also extended Norfolk (triple-A) and Frederick (single-A).

Barring a complete screw-up by Richmond’s management, it’ll either be another 2-4 years with the San Francisco Giants (which wouldn’t be a bad thing, they do put some serious effort into their system) or 2 years with the Washington Nationals (which opens up promotional doors that simply aren’t available with a Giants partnership).  We’ll know by the end of September.
